Our approach

The road to recovery is as individual as you are. We support you to create a unique and personalised plan. We call this ‘Person First Planning, because you come first. We know that if it is to be successful, it must be your plan, not ours. At the heart of the planning process is the setting of identifiable, realistic and achievable goals, with measurable steps of progression, relevant to you.

We understand your circumstances can change and are flexible enough to work with you and be responsive to your needs.
